Place: Harva Island, Finland

This project is a part of wider and long-term international cooperation coordinated by YMCA Europe. It's called "YMCA Camps in Europe ".

The Programme was launched in 2013, when the first plans and agreements were made. Since that time 3 international training courses within this programme have been run: May 2015 and May 2016, in The Netherlands and September 2016 in Portugal - all of them were awarded with grants of Erasmus+. Now The YMCA of Finland takes the initiative and joins the movements that host another edition of training.

Since 2016 "YMCA Camps in Europe " contributes to building World Programme Coalition at camping. That is thanks to closer cooperation with the leadership of The YMCA of USA. In Harva, we expect contribution experts at camp management from American YMCA as it was in case of training in Portugal. This will give the event additional value.
